Dear 100 Hour Board,

When I watch the Netflix game show Ultimate Beastmaster in the US, the main commentators heard the majority of the time for all competitors are the two American ones. When someone logs into Netflix from an IP address in Germany, Brazil, South Korea, Japan, or Mexico, do they get a version of the show in which the commentators from that country's booth are providing the play-by-play commentary?



Dear January,

As far as I can tell, yes. The purpose of having commentators from each participating country is to make it easy to broadcast to multiple countries without having to go through the process of translating everything, and although I wasn't able to find anything conclusive, it seems like the best way to do that would be by tracking the location of IP addresses. When they do show commentators from other countries in the US version, it's mostly just to show their reactions to the performance of the athletes from their country, but it looks like they've got cameras rolling on them at all times so they can provide play-by-play commentary, just like Terry Crews and Charissa Thompson do for the US. 

Speaking of Terry Crews, here's a picture of him in a bizarre Old Spice commercial:

This picture has nothing to do with your question, I just thought it was funny.
